Cuff Is Too Tight

I finished a sweater recently and it was too roomy. I decided to agitate it in warm water so shrink it somewhat, and it worked well for the body. Unfortunately, the cuffs are too tight. Any suggestions for altering the cuff so I can wear it comfortably?

OH, that is a problem.
Is the sweater felted or just a little firmer?
Are you able to remove (cut or unknits) and reknit the cuffs?

You might try soaking just the cuffs in cool water and re-block?


I will try that.

The sweater came out great. It fits nicely. Only the cuffs are problematic.
